S17E1 – How Descriptive Should I Get With Appearances?

The whole purpose of Writing Roots is to help authors achieve their goals. To help them write and to be published, if that is their wish. Along the way, though, writers often find stumbling blocks and no good resource to turn to for answers. That’s why in December, we want to answer your questions. We see and hear the same questions time and time again. This month, we are giving you the answers.

December’s first question is about appearances. There’s a balance for describing characters and scenes that can be difficult to achieve. You want to give the readers enough to have a clear image in their minds without overwhelming them with unnecessary and boring details. This episode breaks down when and how to describe characters and scene in not only the first book, but in the sequels.

First aired December 3, 2020.
